Integrates Valgrind in Jenkins.

This Plugin integrates Valgrind (memcheck to be exact) into Jenkins by providing:

  • Valgrind Runner: to run valgrind with your executables
  • Valgrind Publisher: to record valgrind xml reports

Those two things work independently from each other. So if your build system already calls valgrind (as part of your unit tests or whatever) just use the publisher to record and analyze the xml reports.

Feedback, bug reports and feature requests are highly appreciated, just create a JIRA issue or drop me a email.
